What are the STI test options in East Chicago,IN?

The community of East Chicago, IN has suffered greatly in recent years with the lead disaster and growing STD prevalence rates. Fortunately, all of that seems to be turning around for the Lake County town. Federal disaster emergency assistance is available to help with the lead crisis and both HIV and STD prevalence rates appear to be dropping.

During the five-year period between 2013 and 2017, East Chicago demonstrated rising prevalence rates for STDs and HIV; 12.6% and 15.3% respectively. These increases were in line with those of the state of Indiana as a whole which were 23.7% for STDs and 12.8% for HIV.

However, from 2017 to 2018 those rates both dropped. STD prevalence rates fell by 5.4% during that period while HIV rates plummeted by 27.8%.

East Chicago is one of the few areas in the nation that is winning the war on the spread of STDs. 

Residents who want to be screened for HIV and/or STDs have options within East Chicago and throughout the surrounding communities. This includes the East Chicago Health Department on West Chicago Ave which may offer these tests.

Farther down West Chicago Ave there is the East Chicago Clinic, part of HealthLinc Community Health. This facility might be another resource for STD and HIV testing.
